The Lian Li PC-B12 has minimal air vents. Two low-speed 140 mm fans draw air from the outside, through a narrow intake vent. The outward airflow from the 120 mm rear exhaust fan is passed through an exterior baffle. The front and side panels are layered with acoustic damping material. The aluminum feet of the case are suspended on rubberized bottoms, that dampen vibrations.
